I have a low powered,all in one computer that I am using at a server.
it has Server 2008 as the OS
Because it is an all in one computer there isn't any more room in the case to put extra hard drives. So I am stuck with external, and it is an older computer with no esata connection so I am using USB. So everything is working fine but, all of my shares off of my USB drive as really slow like 5-15 MBs second. When I get 30-60 MBs on the internal drive shares.
I am using a 1 GB video file so it isn't a bunch of small files that can slow down the copy.
And I can copy stuff to the USB drive local from main drive to USB drive at 40-60 MBs a second, so the USB drive is plenty fast.
This is just my home network server, so it is only going to have 1 computer accessing it at a time, maybe 2 or 3 if there happens to be a lot of people home and using it. But that isn't ever going happen.
I did another Transfer test and it was up to 30-60 megs. So it is just as fast as the internal drive.
Not sure why it wasn't giving me this speed before. must have been indexing or something like that.
Anyways I am a happy person again Thanks for your help
